Everyone has heard about the DSLR. The first thing that comes to most peoples mind is amazing picture quality and a seemingly endless amount of options and adjustments, but with the drawbacks of being a heavy, bulky brick that can have a very steep learning curve and an even steeper price. On the other end of the spectrum there are the point and shoots. People love them because they are extremely portable, easy to use, and cheap at the expense of lower picture quality and virtually no setting adjustments.
But what many people don’t realize is that there is a middle ground. You can get amazing pictures with little to no experience while at the same time maintaining the portability.
Today we are taking a look at Samsung’s “middle ground” camera, the NX100. This camera is what is known as a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera meaning that it does not use the mirror system of a regular DSLR to display an exact image of what the lens sees to the optical viewfinder.
Basically this camera offers a DSLR-sized APS-C sensor, swappable lenses, and a hot shoe for expandability while keeping the small form factor and low weight. Read on to find out just what this camera is capable of.
